Love them. And I also love my mare who has one blue eye and one brown eye. :)

Otherwise, we think he's really cute.

Your horse is beautiful!

My dream horse is an appendix bred APHA (not sure if that is the right classification) with four high socks and a bald face.

I am neutral on bald faces, but I LOVE blue eyes!

I don't mind bald faces, especially if there is dark skin around the eyes. I really don't care for a lot of pink around the eyes. But often bald faces and blue eyes go hand-in-hand.

I love the blue eyes on the forum member CloudsMystique's horse Mystique. Probably the most beautiful blue eyes I have seen, because against a black coat, the blue eyes look like jewels!

I don't even care if they make the horse look "wild," I think that is part of the attraction for me. They make the horse look very expressive! I saw a bay once with very pale blue eyes that gave him a very alarmed or worried look, and I must say I love the way it looks.

I like sclera (eye-whites) too! It can give the horse a very animated expression and has nothing to do with their actual behavior. It just makes them look like they are about to do something naughty.

I like bald faces, but don't particularly care for pink around the eyes. I think dark around the eyes makes them stand out more. Here is our Cinnamon...

As for blue eyes, they definately give a very different look. To me, they are more 'penetrating' than the soft, brown eyes, but I think they are striking when surrouded by dark. Our Angel, a tobiano with 2 blue eyes...

In my riding, I've come across a number of people that had never seen a blue eyed horse, including one lady that told me that she was so sorry that my mare had such terrible cataracts

On the sixth day, God created the Quarter Horse.
On the seventh day, he Painted the good ones.

Well i agree with most of the people here who have said they only like Blue eyes with Eyeliner and bald faces that have the Eyeliner just not favoring the pink, but that has nothing to do with how well that they can move/show....
here's my girl...1 blue eye, 1 brown eye with a blaze:)
